SEE THE EXPLOSION

Fire shut down the Princes Freeway in-bound in a shocking morning on Melbourne roads.

Drivers stuck on the Princes Fwy told Ross and John they were stationary for more than 30 minutes after the truck trailer burst into flames near Little River.

Lanes started re-opening about 8am.

That was one many incidents contributing to traffic mayhem on Melbourne roads this morning.

A caller to 3AW Breakfast said a truck and van collided on the Eastern Freeway inbound, between the Chandler Hwy and Burke Rd.

Amid the long list:

– A pedestrian has been hit on the Burwood Highway, Vermont South, near Bunnings in-bound just after you get off Eastlink
